How to help your child to sleep better and scratch less during the night
Posted on September 24, 2016 
If you're struggling with child who wakes up crying and screaming at night refusing their creams, you may want to consider asking your doctor if they can try melatonin.

Here's why:

Doctors in a Taiwanese hospital worked with children from age 1 to age 18 and gave them 3 mg per day of oral melatonin before bedtime for four weeks.  After four weeks, they found that the children were able to sleep better and had less severe eczema.  

When you talk to your doctor, you can ask them these three simple questions:
1) Is it okay to take melatonin?
2) What is the right dosage? 
3) How long to take it?
